I want to preface this post with the fact that my blog is only six months old at this time, so I don’t qualify for an official year-in-review post, but I wouldn’t let that stop me from composing a nice word cloud. (Extra points to folks who can tell what the word cloud is in the shape of.)
I thought I’d expand on the literally and metaphorically larger words to give some insight on the places I’ve been. Enjoy your trip down new-old post lane! 😉
I published 8 tutorials this year! See them all here.
I got woke and realized that the the only person I need to impress is God.
I realized that He was never gone when He helped me out of a life-or-death situation.
I believed in love and someday making my dreams come true.
I gave my dad the gift of faith for Christmas.
I dared to be indecisive.
I journeyed from the physical embodiment of pain and back.
I participated in a boatload of Three Day Quote Challenges.
I appreciated daruma dolls and committed myself to my degree.
I went down roads traveled (what up Linkin Park reference?!) and got inspired.
I reminisced on the quote that kept me going when I was at rock bottom.
I insisted that you can find all the answers if you persevere on your search long enough.
I stuck out one of my less successful DIY crafts and made something out of nothing.
I made the most of my failure in Finite Math and wound up stronger than ever before.
I blasted through my slight social anxiety and followed through with my tutoring session.
I re-structured this blog about 4 times this past year and, in the past week, re-vamped my Pinterest profile, created a Google+ profile, and — as of yesterday — got on Wattpad. (It was a bunch of stinking work and I still have more to do.)
Thanks to a unit on Japanese culture in my Philosophy class, I fostered a newfound passion for meditation as well as Zen Buddhism. I anticipate more of this in the new year.
Blogging Award –
I showed off my handwriting.
I put my late night thoughts into writing.
I wrote about love because I’m starting to believe it isn’t dead.
I wrote about how we don’t belong anywhere.
I voiced my secret: I have too many secrets.
I wrote about getting lost and then found.
I accepted my body and character.
I accepted the uncertainty in my life.
I accepted my past.
I accepted my triggers.
Moving forward, I definitely see myself focusing my blog on more specific themes; namely Buddhism, positivity, and mentality. This past year has helped me build a lot of ideas and perspectives on how to live boundless, so I think I can hone in more now. I’m also very excited to see what I can get out of Wattpad! I’m looking forward to making my book thing the best it can be and so far the community seems really nice. I highly recommend checking it out as well as giving me a follow. 😉
P.S. I plan on creating a blogging event very soon as well. For those of you who don’t know what those are, they’re basically a recurring or temporary blogging challenge with a specific prompt that’s open to everyone. WordPress has a list of all the current ones here. In order for me to get on that list, my challenge has to successfully run for at least 3 months, so I’d super appreciate your support once I get the details finalized!
